Police in Dubai and Abu Dhabi urged caution on roads due to low visibility caused by dusty winds.

Abu Dhabi police has issued a warning for motorists to drive carefully as the western UAE coastline has come under the influence of a bad weather system.

Strong winds, poor visibility, and thunderstorms and rain in some areas have been created tougher driving conditions. Air traffic has also been affected out of Abu Dhabi airport.

The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology has put out a rough sea warning and asked people to be cautious when going out into sea.

Cumulus clouds, thunderstorms and lightning will cause severe disturbance at sea, a statement from NCMS said.

Motorists driving along valleys should take extra caution as landslides, strong winds and low visibility are forecast.
